These meals look wonderful. Mine wasn't so great.
Dinah's in Culver City, California has been there for many years. They're famous for their chicken, so I ordered the chicken plate which was smaller than the chicken dinner.
Not the best friend chicken I have had. Edible describes it best except for the parts that were too salty.
The creamed spinach was like paste with big hunks of bacon in it as well as too much nutmeg, because I could really taste it. That said, I loved the spinach.
The carrots were sweet like sugar and I bet sucrose was somewhere in the recipe. Also good.
They start you off with a nondescript dinner roll, a slice of banana bread and soup or salad with crackers. I had the salad which was great. They make their own French Dressing which might not be like any other French I've had, but I also like it.
Too bad that the food that made them famous is failing.
